“Bullied by the team of securities”
Review of Blue Diamond

Blue Diamond
Ranked #145 of 199 Nightlife in Melbourne
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 June 2017 via mobile

I was a patron at this venue on Queens Birthday Eve and was wrongly accused of vomiting by the team of security working there. There were three securities to be exact, one of them said to be the head of security. I sincerely expressed that I had not vomited and that they must have confused me with another patron. No matter how much I repeatedly explained that I was innocent they persisted that I am to be kicked out of the venue. My friends also questioned the securities accusations because they were with me the entire time and knew that I had not vomited. I felt very bullied by these securities. I was also so disgraced with surrounding patrons staring at me being harassed by a team of securities as if I had done something wrong, when in fact I was completely innocent. Further to that, I would feel terrible to finish my friends night early especially for some false accusation. After lengthy discussions the securities would still not let it go. They apparently said there was camera footage that I threw up. That obviously was a lie because I never did throw up. I was forced to make an apology otherwise to leave. This kind of behaviour displayed by the securities is disgraceful and unprofessional. I respectfully request this matter to be looked into further and a written form of apology by the least.

I have been here a couple of times in the past few months. Once on a Thursday night and once on a Friday night. On both occasions the music was OK but not particularly memorable. The crowds tend to be pretentious and the balcony is the key congregation point. In fact, the balcony with its good views of the CBD is this establishment's saving grace.

Place is ok, drinks are ok food is ok, view is not bad. But the whole place has nothing that is special or makes it stand out.

Overall it's just another place to go, or not to

Having lived in Melbourne previously for a couple of years, I returned to Blue Diamond for another night out. The location is amazing with the best view of the Melbourne skyline, a great balcony to enjoy a cigar, a fantastic bar selection and the refurb since I was last here looks great.

Save it for a Friday or Saturday night and make sure you ring to get on the door or it can be difficult to get in.

A must visit bar during your stay in town.

Nicely presented staff and bar. Amazing view (level 15) but the service for me was very average with the exception of the hostess who seemed busy but actually helpful. First visit we arrived at 5pm and the gates were locked (sign says open at 4). Even though the sign says to book your function (and it's the polite thing to do when bringing 30+ people to a venue), don't bother. Didn't even ask for a name upon booking and then didn't reserve an area anyway. When we returned for the party, the sign on the street says happy hour 4-9. Bartender stopped happy hour at 7. No biggie, but I mentioned they should change their sign. He swore it said 7 and I suggested he check. I checked on the way out and still said 4-9. Cheeky.
